Hello Jon, You will want to use a Urea glue like Unibond 800 for this type of lamination. I also would recommend you use 1/8” thickness. 1/4” will spring back. The more laminations one uses, the more exacting the piece will come out of the mold. If you look at my Projects under the kitchen cabinet file you will see some curves I did that are around 7” to 7 1/2” wide curves sitting on a form. You will see that they have very little spring back. I resawed these 1/16” thick in order to get a virtually no spring finished curve. I used special 1/8” bending ply in the core with two 1/16 thick pieces on each side. I will try to post some photos of how tight this ply bends later.
